Naked nails

This week I'm trying something different. Polish free nails. AKA naked nails.

I have been painting my nails pretty regularly for the past few months and I love it! But, I have been noticing my nails are splitting more at the tips. At first I was thinking it's due to the fact that I wash my hands a million times a day at work. So I decided to keep them painted to try to help. Didn't work.

So this week I am taking a break from painting! It feels weird, but I can already see a difference. If this works, I'll try painting my nails every other week.
I think the combo of excessive hand washing and the nail polish was just too much. The only thing I can take a break on is the polish. Since I work with sweet babies, the hand washing is a must. Every afternoon I wipe boogies, get slobbered on and of course, change diapers! So I will give my nails a break from the pretty polish.

Do you have nail issues? How do you keep your nails strong and healthy? I'd love any tips you have! :)

  1. nail polish tends to help my nails. unless i wear it too long then they turn yellow. Mine are pretty weak right now. you should try a strengthener..theyre not that cheap but they work pretty well.
